    Recruiting Coordinator Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Home Instead Senior Care.

    Interview

    An advertisement was placed on Indeed.com looking for a Recruiter back in June and then again in August.. I am an experienced Health Care Recruiter and very well known in the CT area, I immediately submitted my resume with cover letter to the Trumbull location and also on the companies website. It has literally been almost three months and I have not heard anything back from anyone with this company. When I placed a call to the office, I was informed by the staff member that, "the person who owns this particular franchise" is often not in the office, but does all of the hiring. I explained that I am very interested in the position posted online, however I have been waiting for almost three months for a call back, or even acknowledgment that my paperwork had been received. I asked if this is a position that is even available, or if the owner is just putting feelers out into the medical community. The only thing that the office staff member could tell me was that she would take my information down and let the owner know that I am still available and interested in the position....
    Needless to say, its been a very unpleasant experience and no longer have desire to work for this company!

    Part Time Caregiver Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Attleboro, MA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Home Instead Senior Care (Attleboro, MA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Two different women from same location emailed same day, interviewed next day. Standard interview, friendly person. When I was honest about a DUI 9 years ago (been in recovery ever since), the tone changed and I got a rejection letter. I had 8 years experience, and a 4 year college degree. It floored me that Human Service "professionals" don't understand addiction or believe in change. I also felt it weird they email everything from approach to reject, never reaching out via phone.

    Recruitment Coorindator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Home Instead Senior Care in February 2016.

    Interview

    I was called the same day I applied to set up an interview for the following week. I went in to meet with the owner, only to discover it was really just a "see if you're a serial killer" interview, which lasted 10 minutes. She set me up for a longer more in depth interview the beginning of the following week. This interview lasted an hour. She was asking questions directly from a sheet, same exact questions for each individual employer. Very tedious and repetitive. She told me she would like to move forward and complete my background check and that I'd be set up with an "affirmation interview," which would involve meeting the office staff "to be sure I'm the right person for the team." I took that to mean "as long as you're background check comes out ok and my staff approves, you're good to go." I had the "affirmation interview" 2 days later (a Thursday) when they called to set it up (Wednesday), they informed me that my background check was already back and was good to go. The staff was uncomfortable interviewing (I could tell they had not done it much), but we all seemed to get along quite well. This process lasted maybe 30 minutes. I left expecting a phone call, given that the owner hadn't even met with any other candidates for their long interview yet (I assumed, they're background checking me and setting me up to meet the team for an "affirmation interview," I must have a job -- I have not a single thing on my record). That was over a week ago. I don't understand how an employer could go through that lengthy (and costly) process of interviewing, only to mislead the applicant? Why call it an "affirmation interview" if you're not affirming anything? I am more than qualified, have some of the best references you can get, and a spotless record of management and recruitment. Very strange.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Home Instead Senior Care (Rochester, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    It was very long and lengthy, She asked all the questions I think were apart of an interviewing exam? It was 2 pages of interview questions? It was my first interview after 9 years, but the owner Joy made It certain that they needed aides after I met her the day before. The interviewer wanted me to meet the nurse and the Owner (again), which I couldn't understand why? I told her I didn't mind waiting, which I did.
